Muslims Complain, U.S. Network Cancels Controversial Pilot

The U.S.-based television network ABC Family has cancelled a pilot for a new series, Alice in Arabia, after an outcry from a local Muslim group.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the recently ordered pilot came under fire from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), after a script for the show was leaked, revealing it revolves around "an American teenage girl kidnapped by her extended royal Saudi Arabian family and forced to live with them."
